With the number of announcements of routes this week, it seems airlines are trying to get people excited to travel this summer. Finnair is joining the party, with the airline announcing three new routes.

Joining the network for Summer 2023, are Ljubljana (Slovenia), Bodø (Norway) and Milan Linate (Italy). With this, Finnair will operate to more than 50 destinations in Europe.
Bodø is a new destination for Finnair, with three weekly flights. Ljubljana will return to the network map as well. Finally, Finnair will start flying to the Linate Airport in Milan, in addition to flying to Milan’s Malpensa Airport, offering passengers choice, as well as connectivity at Helsinki Airport, allowing passengers to connect to destinations in Asia and the Middle East and the USA.
The airline will also increase its frequencies to several European capitals, such as Berlin, Copenhagen, Vilnius and Riga as well, with most capitals being served double daily.
For those who need a list of destinations, scroll below to see where Finnair will serve for the Summer 2023 season:
|Domestic||Europe||Asia & Middle East||USA|
|Jyväskylä||Antalya||Hong Kong||Los Angeles|
|Palma de Mallorca|
Ole Orvér, Finnair’s Chief Commercial Officer said:
“Travel has recovered at a good pace and we are increasing flights to European routes to meet the increased demand in Asia. For example, the Bergen and Bodø routes are seamlessly connected to our flights to Japan,”
It’s all about the network
Three new destinations in themselves won’t be the headline here – it is about funnelling passengers through Helsinki and out onto another service – feeding the long-haul network ideally, as well as feeding onto domestic and regional services.
Aiding people in easy transit at a hub is important as we all know – with quick transits possible via Helinski if needed.
With a push towards its Asia networks, Finnair is hoping for a busy Summer 2023 season by opening further options up. It’ll be interesting to see if these destinations last through to the winter season.
